Gates to headline Aladdin at MKT

POP and musical theatre star Gareth Gates will be taking panto-goers on a magical carpet ride this Christmas in the title role of Aladdin at Milton Keynes Theatre.

This year’s fun-packed family pantomime opens at Milton Keynes Theatre on December 9 and Gareth will be joined by the hilarious 2010’s Britain’s Got Talent finalist Paul Burling as Wishee Washee.

Paul became a firm favourite with judges and public alike for his side-splitting comedy routines, most memorably his uncanny impersonation of Harry Hill.

The original Gareth has appeared in Les Mis and Joseph as well as donning sequins and lycra for TV’s Dancing on Ice,

He said: “I’m really looking forward to playing Aladdin this year and bringing lots of fun and laughs to the stage at Milton Keynes Theatre.” Aladdin runs from December 9 to January 15. To book tickets or for more information call the box office 0844 8717652 or go online www.atgtickets/miltonkeynes
